Local artist dies

Local, gifted draughtsman Ed Valk in Madoerastraat (born in Schiedam in 1926) passed away on 11 June 2012.

He was particularly renowned for his sensitive but brutally honest drawings of the human body – young and old, his work being described as ‘niets verbloemend realisme’ in an exhibition of drawings in the Kunsthal Rotterdam entitled “Ed Valk tekent mensen” in 2002.
